President’s Message – January 2016

Dear Aquarist,

The new year is here, and we rung it in with our speaker, Jeff Bolbach. Jeff has spoken at BAS before and this time his discussion was great again. Jeff’s presentation was about “Getting Rich Breeding Fish.” Although It was a cold night, we still had approximately 100 members show up for Jeff, and our auction — or perhaps maybe just the cake — either way, it was a good night.

Next month, our guest speaker will be Joe Caparatta, owner of Manhattan Aquarium. Joe will be speaking on the “Triton Method” for reef tanks. Joe has spoken previously at BAS and has always been a great supporter of our Society.

Doors open at 7:30. As always, there’s free parking and refreshments.

Remember, we can always use help. If anyone wants to help out in any way, please let us know. See me personally or any officer or board member. If anyone has any topics they want to hear expert speakers on, or any specific speaker, please tell us that also.

We would like to thank our members and our sponsors for their constant generous donations that keep us going. Anyone who has any aquatic items, supplies or equipment, and that would include healthy livestock of fish, corals or plants, we always welcome the donation.

Thanks and see you next month!

Steven Matassa
